Not saying I support it at all, but they wonder why people pirate.
Yes, because they don’t want to pay hundreds of pounds every year when they can get it for free.
know they don’t. He was saying that
(Sky/Now) wonder why, when they can’t even provide 1080p in a year when some stuff (mostly Japanese) supports 8K!
They probably can provide it, there's just no incentive to at this time (but they want to). Japan does lots of stuff we don't - their trains run to the second, you can set your watch by them (with apologies dished out if they're early or late by seconds) whereas ours are lucky if they turn up at all and all that follows is a half-arsed "apology" on Twitter.
Remember that Now TV is the poor man's Sky to an extent and if it starts gaining funky stuff that makes it look more appealing than the main Sky/SkyQ package, people may decide not to keep paying £25 a month to have a dish on the side of the house. Presumably it costs a fortune with all the infrastructure to upload to Astra as opposed to squirting the output to internet streams.
